  • Redbridge Green Fair is on Sunday 7th July 2019
    The Green Fair recipe: a happy community atmosphere, with that special mix of music (local musicians), participatory arts (green-themed, for everyone), stalls (wide and exciting mix with a lots of environmental goods), carnival parade (in recent years), have-a-go dancing and all sorts of demos, workshops and conversations. :) But what's new this year? A fabulous Eco Activities marquee with non stop information, demos, activities run by Transition Ilford. Caribbean dancing led by local and famous AGELESS TEENAGERS, leading Caribbean dancing 3-4 and then a fabulous Caribbean carnival parade at 4pm. For more information, see the Redbridge Green Fair website.
